Atoll by Patrick Norguet, a designer based in Paris, France, is a lounge chair inspired by the four islands it takes its name from. Located along the coral rim, these inspirational islands imbue it with a tropical quality that is mainly captured through color. It also gives the chair its sectional design, that breaks up the otherwise minimalist form.

Created for Tacchini Italia, Atoll by Patrick Norguet is cushioned with foam that is covered in a nicely textured fabric. The body rests on four sturdy wooden legs that can support quite a lot of weight. It has a slightly asymmetrical silhouette since it only boasts one armrest. Sleek and cosy, the lounge chair could be found in both traditional and modern homes.
